Non-Jewish CB 9 Member Bravely Fights Zoning Vote Scheduled on Yomtov

Brooklyn Community Board 9, which represents the Jewish half of Crown Heights along with Lefferts-Gardens, scheduled a vote on a controversial zoning issue which directly affects the Jewish community on the holiday of Simchas Torah, effectively preventing the Jewish community’s participation in the deliberation and vote. One non-Jewish member of the board bravely spoke out against this outrage, and thankfully she was able to prevent the vote from taking place.
